Special Session

The Psycholinguistics of Signed and Spoken Languages

This special session brings together researchers studying both signed and spoken language research. We believe insights gained in both areas may shed light on fundamental issues in language processing, including the extent to which language learning, processing, and representation are modality (in)dependent; the degree to which the inherent and emergent differences between signed and spoken languages affect basic processing strategies; whether the modality differences lead to corresponding differences in the neural organization of language; and how the sometimes atypical patterns of language exposure that arise in some sign-language communities can affect language learning and language representation. Invited speakers include:

David Corina (University of California, Davis)
Karen Emmorey (San Diego State University and UCSD)
Diane Lillo-Martin (University of Connecticut and Haskins Lab)
Rachel Mayberry (UCSD)
Gabriella Vigliocco (University College, London)


The 20th Annual CUNY Conference on Human Sentence Processing, hosted by the Center for Research in Language at the University of California, San Diego, will be held in La Jolla, California, at the Museum of Contemporary Art of San Diego, in La Jolla. (Please note that the MCASD has two locations, one in downtown San Diego, one in La Jolla; the conference will be held at the La Jolla location). The dates of the conference are March 29-31, 2007.

La Jolla is a small seaside community immediately adjacent to San Diego. The conference will be held in La Jolla village, where shops and restaurants fill the blocks around beautiful La Jolla Cove. Further north on the mesa is UCSD, home of the Center for Research in Language, and several other research campuses, including the Neurosciences Institute, the Salk Institute and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
